Bruce Dickinson, lead singer of British metal legends Iron Maiden, has also released solo albums during his career, the most recent being 2005’s “Tyranny Of Souls”. So it’s been a while since Dickinson released an album outside Maiden. In September, Dickinson said he had already done some work on his next solo album.

Now, in a recent interview with Consequence, Dickinson reveals that the material for his forthcoming solo album is already half finished.

“I’ve been working on it, on and off, since Tyranny Of Souls. But between lockdowns and albums and Maiden tours and everything else, I’m looking for a clear space to actually nail and say, ‘Okay, this is what it’s gonna be,’ and get to put some backing tracks down. And then we can do it. So we’re at the point now where we’ve already got — I don’t know — anywhere between 50 and 70 percent of the material for the album, depend[ing] on what we pick, from things we’ve already got.

Dickinson says that after the Maiden tour in March, he will start refining the material with his collaborator Roy ‘Z’ Ramirez.
